I had to take a moment to reflect on a new “motion” that has come into our daily experience. I’m talking about Apple’s Face ID and Microsoft’s Window’s Hello. Now don’t get me wrong, I actually love this feature in both environments. I am just amused at the contortions I have to get into to satisfy my technolgy masters. I think eventually, there will be a syndrome surrounding a neck injury caused by crooking your neck to make your face in the focus frame for face recognition. Having to hold you head in an unnatural position long enough for the unlock to work will be something added to our “activities of daily living.” People will be applying for disability coverage because they have cervical injuries caused by cell phones and laptop cameras.
Live Long and Prosper.
